Our accommodation will commence in the area to the west of the Blue Mountains in NSW. We’ll own motels and houses to provide safety for those whom we help. The motels will provide immediate safety, and the apartments will provide long term safety. Our Dwellings will all have security features to make sure that those whom we help feel protected.
Initially, we’ll offer a motel room for the mother and her children (and we’ll also provide housing for the pets) to move to. When a vacancy becomes available in more permanent housing of our own, then the group will be moved into whatever accommodation we can give them.
Keeping Those We Help Safe
We plan (should the need arise) to shift the family group if there is any sign that the woman or her children are in danger. This is why the initial accommodation is of a temporary style.
It is well documented that many women who leave a violent partner are murdered in the first two months after having left. Hence, the initial accommodation will be in buildings that will be guarded by security guards and camera surveillance.
In order to accommodate the family pets we’ll have kennels, catteries and bird cages. On the roof of some buildings there’ll be a dog kennel and a cattery. At others the kennels and catteries will be in the yard. Birds can be kept inside the apartment or room, inside a cage. Many women fear leaving their violent partner in case he tortures, harms or kills the pets. Therefore we plan to alleviate this fear by providing the means for the woman to bring her’s and her children’s pets with her.
We will work in conjunction with community centres and Police Domestic Violence officers in order to help those who truly do need the assistance.
